As an Academy we respect the rights of students, staff and parents/carers. We believe that everybody is entitled to receive the best education. Chestnut Grove Academy provides a ‘Creative Learning Community’ committed to ensuring that everyone develops through praise, encouragement, rigour and structure. Central to this is P.R.O.U.D which is the way we convey the Academy’s ethos to the students.

POSITIVE and engaged

We understand that exemplary behaviour and a positive attitude to learning are key to outstanding progress. We have high expectations of ourselves and each other.

RESILIENT and independent

Our behaviour, learning and progress are our own responsibility. We participate widely in extra-curricular activities and revision sessions, gaining confidence by working hard to overcome any barriers to our success.

OPEN-MINDED and creative

We embrace diversity and the wealth of opportunities at Chestnut Grove, our ‘Creative Learning Community.’ We ask questions, challenge opinions and respect differences. 

UNIFIED and community focused

We ensure that our behaviour, attitude and actions have a positive impact on the whole community – together we can achieve more!

DETERMINED and committed

We understand that in order to achieve academic excellence, we must demonstrate an exemplary work ethic: punctuality, excellent attendance and perseverance. By maintaining a healthy diet, we maximise our potential to achieve.

We expect everyone to follow the Chestnut Grove Code of Conduct as everyone has the right to learn, be treated fairly and to feel safe.

We expect every student and member of staff to follow the CHARTER based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, written by our students.
